We are a family of 5: Julie-English teacher, Peter-electrical engineer ( working in mobile phone industry), Dorothy, Sarah and Piro (they are twins) - university students. We live in Fót (20km from Budapest) in a really nice terraced house. We have a dog, Pandúr, he is a foxterrier and he is also the part of our lovely family. Julie teaches at home, she has private lessons mainly for adults and high school students, Dorothy also helps her, she teaches kids and holds fun classes.
We are a really active, sporty, social and out-going family!
We like doing programmes together during the weekends such as hiking, going to cinema/theater, visiting/inviting friends or just playing something together. We are never bored, life is quite busy here.
Since the girls have moved from home, our house has become unusually silent and empty. We want to fill it with cheer, fun and nice people.

We are looking for an American or English native speaker or near native speaker who can talk to us all day.
We also want you to join us in our English lessons, talk to our students, play with the kids. We want to host somebody who likes talking by him/herself, we can't wait to hear your interesting stories :)
We have a guest room in the basement with own bathroom and wifi OR you can choose one of the girls' rooms upstairs.
2 years ago Piro and Dorothy tried out workawaying in Italy and Ireland and because they really enjoyed we decided to open our house for workawayers. We also learnt from their experience so now we know how a "host family" should behave and what expect from workawayers so we can't wait to host YOU!
Although we don't live in the capital, you can reach Budapest easily by train or bus (40mins). Buses and trains run quite often. We are really close to "must see" places such as the Danube Bend, Godollo Castle and all the famous places in Budapest. We are ready to show you our amazing capital city,that you will fall in love with :)
There are also a lot of good running tracks, we go running every week to keep fit, we don't mind if you join us!
